Rockin' Retro Birthday RS11 AND A WINNER!!! :D

Pin It Now! Hey crafty friends!  Today is my local card swap, and today is also the day I started my cards.  Yah, I work well on a deadline :)  The theme is Masculine, so I whipped out my Grunge Rock which is retiring at the end of the month.  I tend to keep masculine retired stamps because guys don't care about current/trendy stamps!

I used this week's RetroSketches template, which is fab and fun!  And if you don't recognize that patterned paper, Stampin' Up! enthusiasts, that is because its (SNEAK PEEK ALERT!!!) NEW!!! Christmas DSP called Be Of Good Cheer.  The cool 50's-esque stars caught my eye when flipping through my paper stack, and it was perfect for the design I had in mind.  This paper is awesome...some are very Christmasy, others can be used year 'round.

Here's the sketch:

And here are the details:
Paper layers: Be of Good Cheer, First Edition, Crumb Cake, stamped & run thru Big Shot with Stripes embosisng folder, Very Vanilla banner
Embellishments: Mini brads, Cherry Cobbler quilted ribbon

The inside...

I think my 'tween dudes will like this one!

And last, but not least, the winner of the BLOG CANDY FROM THIS POST. Drumroll please....
The winner of the crystal drawer pull card holder and Thank You card is:
